  • This particular church is one of the most beautiful in Vicenza. The painting, the ambience, the host all are amazing. The altar is worth special attention, due to structures and material used.  more »

  • Impressive church and altar piece
  • One of the most beautiful and important church in Vicenza from XIII (used to be dominican convent) with great pieces of art ex. Bellini's Baptise of Christ. Since the church is a state property there is NO FREE ENTRANCE!!! The famous reliquary of the Holy Thorne you may find in Diocese Museum of Vicenza. Both places you can visit with BIGLIETTO UNICO for 15€ that gives you 7 day access to many other museums in Vicenza and Teatro Olimpico. Ticket office is at the entrance to Teatro Olimpico.
